Adoption support

We support adopters, children and families throughout the adoption process and beyond – our support doesn’t just stop when the adoption order is granted; adoptive families can approach us at any time.

We offer support for adopted children, adults and adoptive parents throughout their adoption journey. We have a dedicated support team made up of skilled professionals including social workers and family practitioners. 

We offer: 

  • advice, support and signposting to appropriate services 
  • assessments of need 
  • direct work 
  • groups 
  • workshops 
  • activities and events 
  • annual conference 
  • monthly newsletter 

If you feel you need advice or support, please get in touch by completing this: adoption support enquiry form

We can help, through support from our own skilled workers, or by guiding you to the most appropriate support services. 

More information about support for adoptive parents can be found on the Adoption England website.

Adoption and special guardianship support fund (ASGSF)

The Adoption and special guardianship support fund (ASGSF) provides funds to local authorities and regional adoption agencies to pay for essential therapeutic services subject to our assessment for eligible adoptive families.  Further information can be found on the Government’s GOV.UK website. 

If you are caring for a child under a special guardianship order, you can seek support to access the fund through the local authority which placed the child.
